Our Founder Inger Larsen

Inger founded the specialist localization recruitment company Larsen Globalization (G11n) in 2000.

Inger worked in localization for 17 years before this. She started out as a translator, specializing in software localization at IBM in her native Norway.

She has degrees in British and American Literature and Culture, Technical Translations, and diplomas in IT and HR. Inger is bilingual in Norwegian and English and has in addition good understanding of German, Swedish, Danish, Faroese and a bit of French.

After studying IT and teaching translation and software localization at Surrey University, she moved to Dublin and worked as an international Project and Program Manager for Microsoft. Returning to the UK to work for Xerox, Inger moved into global account management and sales.

Inger has retained a strong interest in education and regularly visits universities to speak to translation students.

She has also attended many international industry events, often as a speaker and panelist, besides writing several published articles for industry magazines.

Inger is our managing global director, in addition to heading up recruitment in Europe.

She is also a very enthusiastic member of Women In Localization, both locally at UK chapter level and globally.
